I should be ashamed that I haven't seen enough of George F. Walker's plays. A friend of mine lured me into seeing this one [Thanks Keri-Lee Smith!].
The two leads, R.J. [Ryan Morton] and Denise[Claire Friessen] were the dramatic portion, the straight-men to the comical Phillie [Randal Payne] who stole the show. Helen [Cairn Moore] teetered on dramatic and comical. It's always good to check out anything Hope McIntyre has directed, since she knows what to get out of her actors. I loved the hard rock musical interludes that transitioned each scene too. To get your fill of Canadian Content [Can-Con for short], then see this one.
